Investigators identified 42-year-old Geandy O’Reilly as a suspect.

Police said a search warrant on O’Reilly’s property recovered electronics, 88 cases of beer, and nearly 7,000 gift cards.

Police arrested three of his alleged associates in September, 35-year-old Anisel Matososa, 56-year-old Ernesto Mato, and 42-year-old Mayluis Novoa.

Police said this was a multi-state investigation involving at least 1,000 victims.

Evidence on O’Reilly’s cell phone led investigators to other alleged crime rings in multiple states across the country. 

Investigators have identified suspects in Arizona, Florida, and Tennessee.
